Exit polls: Pennsylvania Dems think Obama will win

[cnn-photo-caption image= http://i.cdn.turner.com/cnn/2008/images/04/22/change.jpg caption=" Obama addresses the crowd at the University of Pittsburgh. "]
(CNN) - Barack Obama will win the Democratic nomination, a majority of Pennsylvania voters believe.

According to the exit polls, 54 percent of primary voters said Obama will be the party's nominee while 43 percent said Clinton will win.

In what could be a troubling sign, only 38 percent of voters said they'd be satisfied if either candidate was the nominee. Meanwhile 32 percent said they'd be satisfied only if Clinton wins, while 25 percent said they'd be satisfied only if Obama wins.

For the time being at least, the party is sharply divided between these two candidates.

    All week we have heard how Obama has outspent Clinton 2:1 or more, and yet she is still close or winning PA. If she had the same funds she would be spending it, but he is breaking all records for fundraising in the Demo race as well as the Republican race. If soo many people are giving Obama money, and he has previously won or matched Clinton in even numbers in mostly white states, why do we keep hearing how she thinks she is the better canidate to win against McCain? Earlier tonight it was said that McCain secretly wants Clinton to win, because he belives that he can win against her! Obama should be the nominee not only because he won more delegates, more states, and has the popular vote, but because he has the best chance of winning in November!

    Obama has spoken truth, all what he has said is correct. People who are rich don’t have these problem. I lost my job in Chicago and just prayed to god for help. I have done that to a lot of people. So rich folks do not comprehend what Obama said. He was correct. He has spoken more positive remarks and the first one to bring up change and that we will have. Clinton acts like a mad woman with her negative things on Obama. Obama is neither black nor white he is one of mix culture. Those who call him African American and call themselves white is wrong, they should call themselves European American. Or call him American and drop the racial method, he is the only one that is a mix American he is the next president. Change.

    To Senator Clinton and Obama: in going forward to the next Primary and others remaining, please refrain from taking swipes at each other and be circumspect and have respect for each other. The people of America and around the world are watching. We all have a conscience and we should be able to sleep at night because we know we have done the right thing for the day. In it all and through it all how can we live with ourselves if we mislead people. The most important thing is that God is a witness to all of this.
